16 afghan civilians we're kill killed anywhere that beds. and president obama had a mandate last night with british prime minister david cam rob taking him to the tournament. the question is what do camera think of the historic comeback he owned the president watched from their front-row seats. it's way too early for this. >> good morning, i'm willi willie geist. this is "way too early." i'm glad you're up with us this morning watching on msnbc or listening live. shoot me an e-mail. i don't know w let me know why you're upright now.
we'll read the best responses later in the show. the next 30 minutes will be your cram session. a lot to tell you about today, a lot including a new poll that shows president obama at 50% approval. that's just a day after the new york times poll had him at an all-time low of 41%. we'll sort three all of that. >> i eernl learning to say j'all and i like grits. grits yall and foxworthy. first, though, let's get to the news. live at 530 a.m., we begin with a little breaking news just within the hour. nbc news has declared mitt romney in the hawaii republican caucuses. he won 45% of the vote beating
rick santorum by 20 points. rick saint's southern suite gave the pa set rios last fight. romney is the party's inevitable nominee. just after 10:00 eastern time, he won with 35% report. so third place finished there in alabama for romney. then, just after 11:00 p.m. or just minutes before, actually, a tighter race in mississippi. also called for santorum. he wanted some of the vote there. followed with 31 and 30% respective. so mitt romney, close. santorum celebrated the knife with upcoming comporters. bank blank. >> the name is now for conservatives to pull together.
the time is now to make sure -- to make sure -- that we have the best chance to win this election v and the best chance to win this election is to nominate a conservative to go up against barack who can take obama on on every issue. we want to make sure everyone knows. we're campaigning. we are going foe win this nomination pefr that convention. >> despite losing across the south, he vowed to bin across the states he said he was going to win. newt gingrich is not backing out of the race. >> we will now have three or four days in the news media. these are people by the way who said that i was dead last june. between santorum and myself, we will get over two-thirds of the delegates. i believe after the rye mare is
older, it would it will be obvious that the front runner didn't get there. from that point on, we'll be in a whole k. but the hmm can pain did put out a statement congratulating rick sairnt. this is their argument. as of midnight, even before ha been called. he had more than 200. >> earlier in the day, romney argued the math does not add up for santorum. >> the snow hr tor is trying to be proactive. and, frankly, ms. representing the truth is not a good way of doing that. >> if you look at the math and how many delegates he'd have to win to become the nominee, it's a very difficult road for him.
at this stage, he's looking for some way to try and gain ground. i understand that. >> that, of course, is before all of these numb befores came in last night. let's look at some exit polling. 75% of alabama voters. santorum won this demographic with 35% support in both states. it was the most important trait. almost 20 more. mitt rom with this group. followed by gingrich with 20%. 22% v o mick santorum had the best chance of winning in november.

it cuss give saint a better chance than he's ever had. >> you know, the message from the romney campaign that this is about mirth. and who's likely to win them? is it true? if so, how does rick santoru fight that argument. start talking about a message. why does hoe want to be bethought. it is true, i believe, that you cannot stop mitt romney from grinning to the convention with the mideast delegates. let's say santorum runs a string of victories. if that doesn't happen, then santorum is going to have to find a way to win at the convention to try to win without the majority.
it is true that on this trajectory, he will have the most delegates coming into the convention. >> he'll have the most, but not enough. at what point would he be compelled to get out of the waist. >> i'm not certain king. both of sneeze guys have a view that if you get to the convention and romney doesn't have a majority party, the party will turn to them. it's something who thinks of them ems as a more his foric. as long as you derive majority in the hemp son. >> mark, we'll talk to you in a few minutes.
